We stayed here with a group one night before a week long trip on the Utila Agressor. I am thinking we paid over $300 for the two of us for one night. We were told it was all inclusive and that is true for the food but drinks, including soft drinks, were extra. If the diving is included in the price, which it may be, the price is probably not so out of line for the folks who are staying there to dive. Since we were just relaxing before our trip we didn't dive and feel the price paid was too much for the services received.
We arrived and were welcomed by a friendly staff and treated to chips and salsa. Our rooms were assigned for our group of appx. 16 people. None of us had air conditioning on in the rooms and they were very hot. We had to figure out for ourselves how to operate the units but later on that night we were sufficiently cool. Also several of us had no hot water and figured out on our own, (after reporting to the desk the problem with no results) that the breakers were cut off. Cut them on and an hour later had hot water. If we were staying for several days this may be tolerable but for one night with a large group it seems as if they would have had our a/c and hot water on when we arrived.
The food was adequate but not spectacular and the Friday night barbeque was average at best. We only had BBQ chicken and a few sides to choose from. I must say that Utila is a very poor island and this is the nicest place to stay that we saw there. You really don't have much choice unless you stay in one of the mom/pop places which would probably offer you more for less but without the atmosphere. If I were diving from the island and doing a long trip I would probably return. For an overnight trip I would figure something else out.
Also the resort is not really adjacent to anything and you have to take the water taxi to the inhabited part of the island. If you are a non diver you would probably get bored here. Several of us were out of things to do on Saturday AM waiting on time to board the Agressor. The wireless internet works good in the commons area. The hammocks and private docks over the lagoon are a plus and if you want to just chill the place is perfect. There are no phones or TV's in the rooms. We liked the atmosphere but again had we been most anywhere else could have been in alot better accomodations for the money spent.
